The north end of Orange County got some steady, light rain late Sunday night and early Monday morning, news video showed. Roads were very slippery in the Brea area, but no major accidents were immediately reported.

Earlier in January, Gov. Jerry Brown declared a “drought state of emergency” due to ongoing water shortfalls following the driest calendar year in state history.

A small brush fire popped up Sunday above Glendora where the Colby Fire burned for several days, according to Glendora police. Firefighters were keeping a close eye on the area early Monday morning.
